The Australian’s fear of reds under the beds

The Australian's front page critique of wind energy on Friday was the latest in a series of embarrassing errors when it comes to climate change and renewable energy.

Such a claim is not correct for Australian circumstances. But what I find remarkable is why The Australian considered such a study to be front page news.
